Make mine a golden, please

3 December 2013

December has come out of nowhere and struck us in the face like a wrecking ball knocking some festive spirit into us. As such, our standard Mojito has had a full-on Christmas make-over.

The tacky Christmas jumpers have been dug out from the darkest corners of our wardrobes, our advent calendars have already been demolished, and the mistletoe has been pinned in as many cheeky places as possible. But most importantly, in Late Night London world, our Christmas cocktails have arrived!

To introduce our very, very festive Christmas cocktails – 12 of them in total (WOOP!) - we have launched our very own partridge in a pear tree, a Golden Mojito to add a touch of magic and sparkle to your Christmas celebrations. It is the season for glitter after all.

So what’s in it? Well, it’s a magical mixture of Smirnoff Gold, mint, lime, sugar syrup and lemonade that leaves speckles of glittery gold dust in your glass. It’s the perfect crowd pleaser for any Christmas party. We’d know! Here’s how you make it:


50ml Smirnoff Gold

4 Mint springs

4 Lime wedges

2 bar spoons of sugar syrup




Crush lime, mint, and sugar syrup in a glass, add crushed ice and pour over Smirnoff Gold rum. Top up with lemonade, stir and garnish with mint sprigs along with plenty of Christmas love.


You don’t have to make them yourself, of course. Because we want to spread the Late Night London Christmas spirit, we are practically giving them away with 2-4-1 in all our bars. Simply download your voucher here.


And don’t forget, this is only one of the 12 Christmas cocktails; there are 11 more festive cocktails to come! So keep your eyes peeled because these cocktails WILL be a dazzling injection to your Christmas party needs…
